Our class has had a large number of missing assignments over the last couple of weeks. Students who have a missing assignment during a particular week will now have to fill out a weekly planning sheet the following week and turn it in with a parent signature on Friday to help make sure they are staying on top of their weekly assignments. Thank you for your help in supporting your child’s academic success.

A green letter with information about this year’s 5th grade class gift and basketball shootout fundraiser was also sent home last Friday. Please look this over and send back donations by March 11.
Progress Reports were emailed home Friday, March 6th. These were pushed through in waves, so they may have come throughout the day. If you have not received your child’s progress report by the end of the day on Monday, March 9th, please let me know.
Please check with your student to see the status of his/her school supplies. Many students no longer have pencils. If your student does not have any pencils, please have them bring some more into school as soon as possible.
